(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); jacobian matrix with 2 variables plz help!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

so we have z=x^2+x^3 and z=y+sin(x). Find the jacobian matrix of this system. Find the determinant of this jacobian.

3. The attempt at a solution

The determinant part is easy, the only problem is trying to set this up. I'm not sure where to start. I think I need to take partial derivatives....do we do like dz/dx and dz/dy and just put them into matrix? plz help
